Things & Other Things

Ho scoperto questo brano per caso, in un'esecuzione della cantautrice tedesca Fasia Jansen...
Jailer, bring me water
Jailer, bring me water
Jailer, bring me water
My throat is kind-a dry.
Well, I never had me no money
Never had me no money
Never had me no money
I ain't that kind-a guy.

Oh, jailer, bring me water
Jailer, bring me water
Jailer, bring me water
My throat is kind-a dry

I'm gonna work 'til the good Lord calls me
Be workin' 'til the good Lord calls me
I'm gonna work until the good Lord calls me
It'll be in the by and by.

Oh, jailer, bring me water
Jailer, bring me water
Jailer, bring me water
My throat is kind-a dry.

Now, jailer, should ya see my baby
Jailer, if ya see my baby
Jailer, if ya see my baby
Just tell her I said, "Good-bye."

Everybody singin'...

Jailer,
Jailer, bring me water
Come on jailer, bring me
Jailer, bring me water
Come on jailer, bring me
Jailer, bring me water
Come on jailer, bring me
My throat is kind-a dry.

Ah, jailer, won't ya bring me some ...
Bring me water
Jailer, won't ya bring me some ...
Bring me water
Jailer, won't ya bring me water
My throat is kind-a dry.
